The Feminine Agenda - A Group Exhibition - WomensWork.Art

Over the course of mere decades, The Feminine Agenda has changed all over the world. Progressing through areas of life since the dawn of the 20th Century, Women have been fighting for some of the most basic rights, including the right to vote, financial freedom, and bodily autonomy to name just a small fraction. The speed of technology and the deep enrichment of further education has taught women to explore different ways of life and new methods of thought at a much younger age. Current events and civil issues plaguing America has brought new facets of these issues to marginalized groups of people, and creativity has become an outlet for Revolution and a way to broadcast a message of change.

Womenswork.Art will be exploring the ever-changing theme of The Feminine Agenda, as part of our community involvement with We Rise: Poughkeepsie.

The exhibition will be juried by Artist Ana Maria Farina. (For more about Ana and her work, please visit:

Fused Glass Workshop with Jeep Johnson

Fused Glass Workshop
Feb 1st 2nd and 4th

Learn the basics of glass cutting, fusing (combining colors and shapes) and slumping, which gives the glass a shape. You will have the opportunity to make 2 dishes as well as a couple of necklaces.  It’is great fun and very easy and rewarding for beginners, so please don’t worry about your skill level.


We will work Saturday February 1st from 10:00am – 4:00pm. Our goal is to get the glass in the kiln by around 3:00. The glass “cooks” in the kiln for 24 hours, so we come back on Sunday at 4:00  to clean up the pieces and send them back into the kiln to be shaped, which takes another 24 hours.
We will have work pickup on Tuesday February 4th @ 6:00pm.  The pickup will involve discussion, questions and review of your pieces. 

The cost of the class is $175.00 and is limited to 6 people. Reservations are established in the order I receive them. Please call, text or email to make reservations, payments need to follow shortly after, via check, Venmo or Paypal. In the event you are unable to make the class I will issue a credit for another class. There are no refunds, 

I will also be giving classes in the spring and summer and if you have some friends that want to do it together let me know the dates and we can build the classes around your group.
